Last month, Thai Airways tightened their hygiene measures against COVID-19 on their aircrafts.
This included deep cleaning frequently-touched areas like seat pockets and armrests, spraying the cabin with disinfectant, and fumigating the planes.
If you don’t have any urgent or important matters to settle abroad, it’s best to stay within your country for the next 3 months or until the situation gets better. Otherwise, always keep a mask, hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wipes handy.
